We provide preventative treatment for all your child’s needs including fissure sealants and fluoride treatment.
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems, most commonly, dental cavities, gingivitis, periodontal (gum) diseases and bad breath. There are also oral pathologic conditions in which good oral hygiene is required for healing and regeneration of the oral tissues.
It is recommended that you schedule an appointment every 6 months you ensure that your teeth remain healthy. A regular visit can ensure that we can pick up any underlying concerns before they become dental emergencies.

We recommend children start having regular 6 monthly visits from the age of 4 to ensure that their teeth remain healthy and well cared for as well as allowing them to begin their dental experience in a positive manner that will cover them through their adult lives.
We also have a seditionist we work with to ensure that the child is taken care of when more extensive treatments are needed. This ensures no addition trauma is experienced.
We provide both composite and porcelain fillings, depending on the size of the cavity and recommended treatment.
Our porcelain fillings, also known as onlays or inlays, are created in house and will be placed on the same day.
Both filling options are completely metal free, giving a natural look to the filling, while still being strong and long lasting.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is required when the tooth is damaged either by decay or fractures to the extent that the nerve is affected and causing pain. The process is done in 2 stages. In the first appointment the nerve is removed from the tooth which will relieve pain and a medicament is placed in the root. A temporary filling is placed and the tooth is left to settle for a few days. The second appointment involves widening the canals in the roots to accommodate a rubber filling that is placed to seal the canal. It is highly recommended that a crown is made for the tooth after a root canal as the remaining tooth is more fragile and prone to fracture.
